Lovely blog Michael. In the wilds of Africa you find your true destiny. In nature, inspiration.

I think if Lennon had made it into the African bush you would have problems getting him out. I find the idea of him at the Mount Nelson in 1980 very strange

Michael, Thanks for your inspiring words and relating an insightful connection between the Bealtles and nature! And welsome to the Londolozi family! BTW, your Boma photo is from one of our visits to Londolozi years ago with James Tyrrell and Dave Dampier on the guitars – a magical night for sure!

Nature is indeed inspiring and the connection between Nature and music is real and true….. Beautiful blog, thank you.

Michael, this is such a powerful story. I loved the poem, who was written by? Or is your own creation!

Thank you Joan! Wish I could claim the lyrics as my own, but they’re John’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGAw_k3maXs

From words first read in a book, you’ve made the connection to a deep and lasting journey within the boundaries of Londolozi, discovering along the way your own track and the music all around you. Embrace, enjoy!

Such an interesting blog Michael. I learnt a few things about John Lennon that I ought to have known and yes I imagine that if Lennon had visited Londoz, we would have had even more of his inspirational contribution to the music world.

There is a wonderfully deep connection between nature and it’s silence, which brings a kind of solace and refreshing of one’s spirit.
